amendment rights are and second amendment. i think we ought to have votes. >> wayne lapierre has announced he will respond to the president's state-of-the-union address tomorrow. where else? at the national wild turkey federation convention. nra board member and paranoid mad man ted nugent said this about president obama just a few months ago. >> if barack obama becomes the president in november, again, i will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. >> nugent was, as usual, lying, of course. he is neither dead nor in jail. but that lie earned nugent a secret service investigation for possibly threatening the president. and it earned him an invitation to the last night's address, and the newest nut, steve stockman, democratic congressman, jim langevin, who was paralyzed from a shooting, told reporters that it was an odd choice for a member of congress to invite somebody who threatened the life of the president. ted nugent who never breaks his part as a madman, then said he probably has crap for brains. nbc's luke russert took on the hopeless task of trying to make sense of what nu
about concealed weapons. a hint? wayne lapierre hates this decision. the developments in the gun control debate are coming up next. [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms.
not dealt with. >> this could be another new problem for some moderate voter, wayne lapierre, he runs the nra. i want to read you a snippet of this op-ed piece. "after hurricane sandy we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia, looters ran wild in south brooklyn." didn't happen. "there was food, water, electricities, hurricanes, tornadoes, riots, terrorists, gangs, lone criminals, these are perils we are sure to face. not just maybes. it's not paranoia to buy a gun, it's survival, responsible behavior and it's time we encourage law-abiding americans to do just that." many including joe scarborough said the op-ed was laced with "racial overtones" among other things. what is wayne lapierre doing for the republican party? >> wayne lapierre is representing his organization. whether he's trying to fold into his organization. >> long identified with the gop. >> there's a difference between the nra and the rnc. he's doing what he's paid to do and representing it. the nice thing the democrats are doing are lopping the two groups together so i do understand that
narrative no matter what the circumstances are. you saw wayne lapierre this weekend talking on fox news, and chris wallace was the only person who i've seen really go at wayne lapierre and talk to him person to person about what the flaws in his argument are. short of that you very rarely hear them get put on the defensive in a way that makes other people cringe and perhaps their own membership think they've done this for a long time. they're going to continue to do it for a long time. they're willing to fight to the last left person. they're going to keep on doing what they do, and they've got very powerful enablers. we mentioned harry reid, he has powerful enablers on capitol hill to keep doing what they're doing. >> sam, we have less than a minute left, and you're going to stick around, but what did you think of keith ellison's view of the progressives. >> i think it's a problem. president obama is a centrist democrat whose policies are consistent with that. i think it's important for progressives and liberals to continue to agitate for issues that are important to them as opposed to
violence that could swallow us any time. like the world that wayne lapierre describe at the group's 2012 annual meeting. >> we know that our government lies and shrouds the truth about the very real threats to our lives and our way of life. we know our government knows how vulnerable we are to terrorist attacks that could freeze our transportation systems black out our cities, shut down the distribution of fuel and food, and lead to perhaps months of unprecedented elimination of social order. >> john: that was not a david lynch film. now with lots of him from its corporate allies in the firearms business, the nra has so altered the climate for gun-controlled measures that la pierre no longer makes comments like this one, after the 1999 columbine school massacre. >> we believe in absolutely begun-free zero-tolerance, totally safe schools. [applause] that means no guns in america's schools, period, with the rare exception of law enforcement officers or trained security personnel. >> john: contrast that bit of sanity with this notorious comment from lapier year after the december's sandy ho
. >> reporter: that's wayne lapierre in 1999. he, of course, is basically the chief voice of the nra still today. he was on fox news sunday, this morning. he was indicating his opposition to universal background checks. obviously. it's not what he said in 1999. his fear is there would be a gun registry and the government would insert itself in what should be a private matter for individuals. >> that radical change of thought. you know the picture that jay carney tweeted, a lot of people were talking about it. >> reporter: there were a lot of people talking on it. if you go on social media, i'm sure you heard about the skeet shooting. we reached out to the nra after that photo was put out. one picture does not erase a lifetime of supporting every gun ban and every gun control scheme available. the white house would challenge that characterization of the president's policies on guns. he is a strong supporter of the second amendment. >> many thanks as always. >>> new on "meet the press," panetta gave his confirmation to chuck hagel. >> the political knives were out for chuck hagel. what disappointe

wallace has concluded that wayne lapierre is a little bit crazy. >>> and a bigger story behind the super bowl, the power outage, six words, if we only had a brain. at a dry cleaner, we replaced people with a machine. what? customers didn't like it. so why do banks do it? hello? hello?! if your bank doesn't let you talk to a real person 24/7, you need an ally. ll ally bank. your money needs an ally. do you guys ride? well... no. sometimes, yeah. yes. well, if you know anybody else who also rides, send them here -- we got great coverage. it's not like bikers love their bikes more than life itself. i doubt anyone will even notice. leading the pack in motorcycle insurance. now, that's progressive. call or click today. aarrggh! >>> this picture, of the president -- is now the subject of scrutiny by the skeeters, people who think this picture of the president skeet shooting is fake. i swear, sometimes politics -- i just can't -- real things, real things happening with gun control next. skeeters. [ female announcer ] today, jason is here to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back
out of his mouth. guilt by innuendo guy. can president obama beat the nra? wayne lapierre's rantings about a world without gunses are easy to lampoon but may have the votes and support to block the real legislation. illinois has moved a step closer to becoming the next state to approve gay marriage. observers are worried right now they're losing the culture war on that front. for once i think they're right. and watergate, water hyphen gate. marco rubio's water bottle moment may be the image that haunts him. some of the other moments that fairly or not have come to define some po politicians, forever. this is "hardball," a place for politics. a talking car. but i'll tell you what impresses me. a talking train. this ge locomotive can tell you exactly where it is, what it's carrying, while using less fuel. delivering whatever the world needs, when it needs it. ♪ after all, what's the point of talking if you don't have something important to say? ♪ i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help
to live in? it isn't the america want to live in it isn't the america i want to live in. >> this is wayne lapierre's remark. and so on and so on. pretty insulting and coming from a man who seems to me his sole purpose is try to guarantee that no controls are brought into prohibit the sale of guns. >> that is right. they oppose everything the atf to do their job. they have made it difficult to keep data. they have made it difficult to do proper research. also that manufactures of weapons can produce more. and then they press all of this. it is a gun culture. that culture is letting bad things happen. >> well, you are doing a fantastic job on this tonight. >> piers, thank you you have been wonderful thank you so much for your help. it is uphill all the way. thank you very much indeed. >> thank you. >> joining me now is william beg. he was in the emergency room on the day of the sandy hook massacre. thank you for coming back on the show. you showed everybody today how guns really work in the real work. i want to show a little part of what you did today. >> looks like we have a well placed hi
in the eyes of the left? >> well, i think their main concern is that wayne lapierre will use it in his next hearing to argue that everyone ought to have a drone. >> jennifer: gee. >> like any good card-carrying liberal people have concerns, but is it because we trust obama before than bush? yes, yes we do. and i have had a surprising number of people check in, military people, military guys from afghanistan who said, look this saves soldiers lives, and i think we came out of such a dumb unnecessary war in iraq, when president obama said he's going to fight a tougher but smarter war on terror he has. it's absolutely a tough issue. >> jennifer: yes, i completely agree with what you have just said. i'm interested in karl's take on it. first of all i agree that we trust the president. if this was bush we would be up in arms because we would not trust that he would strike in a very targeted way and try to minis. >> somebody today said that we took out blocks and blocks, that was not a targeted strikes. how many hundred of civilians in iraq did we kill? >> jennifer: karl, if there is this fight
. >> wayne lapierre runs the nra. he's a fascinating and in my view a very dangerous character. he has done complete u-turns on background checks. he used to be in total favor of universal background checks. he was in favor of all schools being gun free. now he wants the opposite. everything is geared towards now with the nra and the leadership, not the membership, but the leadership toward the sale of guns and ammunition. >> and the recommendations are to keep the flow and sale of guns. 3 million guns are imported to the united states every year, 5 million guns that are manufactured here are sold. the nra is funded by the gun lobbyists. i say to smith & wesson, to remington, all the other gun manufacturers, what about putting a gps chip in those guns? you assume the responsibility and cost. i have proposed this to white house, to congress. put a gps chip in that gun. so the responsible gun owner whose house gets robbed by some little punk, and those guns are sold to the bad guys, you should be able to act vite it like i have an ipad, and if somebody steals my ipad, i can activate that app
of segues into what i want to talk about. and the nra we have seen wayne lapierre acting like a fool. i think they are really concerned, because they whelded an amazing amount of power for who knows how long and they are seeing that slip through their fingers. they targeted seven candidates this past fall, and michael bloomberg purposefully challenged those seven of those candidates and he won five of the seven. >> stephanie: it's time to say the emperor has no clothes. they have no power anymore, right? >> caller: yes, i wish your republican politicians could figure that out and not live in fear of those guys any longer. >> stephanie: absolutely. be gone, you have no power here. wayne lapierre >> i think they'll turn this universal check of the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people. >> i don't quite understand what is so bad -- >> stephanie: no one does. >> you -- you register your car -- >> stephanie: right. >> people have a license plate that can be identified. >> stephanie: right, and a car isn't designed to kill. it can. >> theed in that
supporting the background check bill, showing testimony of wayne lapierre supporting a background check. here is a little bit of that ad. >> the nra once supported background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> all right. i'll admit i need quick answers here. can a southern republican vote for the background check bill and get re-elected? >> a licensed dealer at a gun show already does a background check. that's already going on. what we're talking about is antique and special collectors and private sales. i think that's very difficult to legislate properly without killing gun show. >> there is a rural split almost more than anything else. urban politics are more supportive of this idea. >> yes. but i think both the southern republican and the urban republican should all be voting for universal background checks. look, connecticut was a game changer. we need to understand that. the gun issue is here. it's not going away. every other day, we are hearing about a tragedy
, that's how people will see this. wayne lapierre from the nra says the only means of security is the second amendment. when the glass breaks in the middle of the night, we have a right to defend ourselves. he was wildly applauded. you know that he said you aren't free if you can't defend yourselves. that was him speaking at an event on saturday night. how do you tackle that kind of mentality in light of this debate about stand your ground? >> you try to be very open and honest about them, and ask them, as sybrina and tracy have said so many times, it's not personal until it comes to your doorstep when you lose your child to senseless violence. last year, before trayvon was tragically killed, there were many people who knew little about the stand your ground law until it came out that his killer was not arrested because this stand your ground law, and that's important that we realize what this movement was about. his killer was only part of the symptom of the problem. the problem is that we had the stand your ground law that encouraged vigilante justice. if he would have just w
they are framing these issues in that press conference we saw several weeks ago with wayne lapierre, it's like night and day. they saw the numbers and you have aired them on the network showing the nra becoming increasingly unpopular and they knew they needed to change their approach. what they are trying to do is do it in a more explanatory tone so people understand. they know the president is still fairly popular, at least compared to the rest of his term and other presidents in their second term right now. they know they need to be smarter than having a 30-minute long press conference. they didn't take any questions, just trying to tell the public what to think. >> shira, jacki, thanks to both of you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> the confirmation for treasury nominee jack lew is underway. he's going to succeed secretary timothy geithner. lawmakers are expected to question him about his stint at citigroup between the clinton and obama administrations. they could save a lot of money on their car insurance by switching to geico...they may even make you their best man. may i have the rings p
. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> america can do this. for us. >> the point of that is that wayne lapierre, the nra head, now is against universal background checks. specifically he said this morning that they could lead to a universal registry of gun owners, something he says the nra opposes. >> peter alexander from 1600 pennsylvania for us. thank you, sir. >>> a reward for information in the sleiaying of a chicago teenager is at $40,000. there was a march saturday in memory of hadiya pendleton. the 15-year-old was shot and killed tuesday in a park with her friends. i want to bring in reverend al sharpton, host of msnbc's "politics nation." also president of the national action network as well. let's talk about hadiya first. recently got back from washington. she just performed at president obama's inauguration. for folks who don't know the story, who aren't familiar with this little girl, what can you tell us? >> 15 years old, honor student. as you said, performed at the president's inaugural festivities. went home, was on her way in a month or so to paris. and was killed. apparently sta
has put out sensible solutions versus wayne lapierre and the nra and wayne lapierre rants that he put out in the "daily caller" yesterday, again focused on the fear that you just talked about, carol. talking about hispanic gangs going crazy. talking about those people in brooklyn after sandy. i mean, it was just a very racist rant that does not do any good for their position. and the reality of it is, carol, the positions -- the proposals that the president has put out are very sensible. there's a quinnipiac poll that came out yesterday that essentially said that 56% of americans, a majority, not a huge majority, but a majority, support bans on assault weapons on and on the high-capacity magazine clips. 92%, carol, support the universal background checks. >> but there's no chance of -- this community leader also says, you can talk about banning assault weapons all you want. but you have to get to the root of the problem. and the problem she says, isn't so much about guns, it's about the gun culture. and the culture of violence. >> i agree. >> especially on the main streets of chicago.
a listen to something that wayne lapierre said last night in salt lake city. take a listen. >> but i've been amazed, just amazed at how rapidly this debate deteriorated from what has proven to work to what has proven to be the political agenda of those bent on attacking the second amendment to our constitution. dianne feinstein herself commented she's had the gun ban legislation in her desk for over a year waiting for the right time to introduce it. really? >> do gun rights activists like yourself still take that guy seriously? >> well, i think that gun rights, people take the second amendment seriously. >> that wasn't the question seriously. do you still take wayne lapierre seriously? is he still an effective spokesman pore gun rights activists like yourself? >> i think that's a question that's really beside the point. the question should be, in my opinion, what can be done that realistically would make a difference in not having these horrible situations like we saw with those children being murdered, and i think it's -- it's three prongs. it is certainly more capability to know wh
is best summed up by the rifle association's leader, wayne lapierre when he said this. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. >> all right. back with me is civil rights attorney, maya whiley, new york university professor, nick and former staffer for new york mayor mike bloomberg now against gun violence, dena, is that correct? got it. i am bad at people's names. i want to start with you. i spent some time last night and this morning reading this text reducing gun violence in america and mayor bloomberg wrote the forward to the text making the claim it is all gun violence. suicide rates here in new york. not only do we keep people from being killed in homicides with guns, we have lower gun suicide rates. once you don't have a gun you can't shoot anybody. it feels like a basic argument. >> it's absolutely true. the statistics bear that out. states that have universal background checks or stronger background check laws have half the suicides than states that don't have those laws in place. almost 40% of women -- 40% fewer women are shot and killed by in
're pretty good at calling out people. i learned that! i learned that, let's see, wayne lapierre is extreme on guns and paul krugman is extreme on debt. they sort of occupy their own alternative universeses and the question is whether the republicans are going to have the guts to stand up to lapierre and whether democrats will be strong enough to walk away from krugman. but we'll see what happens. if it's way too early, what time is it? >> it's time for "morning joe". >> tell us. >> it's time for "morning joe," but now it's time for "the daily rundown" with chuck todd. have a great day. happy valentine's day! >>> the posturing around chuck hagel's nomination for a defense secretary, well, it's getting murkier by the minute. are republicans gearing up to deny an up or down vote for the pentagon kick before the weekend? >>> president obama's road show policy push hits atlanta today and we'll take a deep dive into the options and odds of the president having to fall back on executive actions, because his policies won't go anywhere in congress. >>> and the republican ruckus over karl rove's con
for calling. i think i think she is right. people at the nra, i think wayne lapierre needs a psyche evaluation. >> that's who she is referring to. >>. >> a total lune and a mainiac. i want to leave you with this. atlanta, another school shooting. when is this going to end? when is congress going to get to work? i want to talk to those who want to vote against a background check. don't go anywhere. we have another great hour for you. >> this is "the bill press show." [ music ] >> we are back on the bill press show. as bill always says, there is a seat here for you at the table. give us a call at 1866-55-press. you know, i've got to tell you, with all of the gun shootings that we are could not to go see all across the country, it really is time for us to act now. we are going to have a conversation. you want to be here. we are going to give you the unemployment numbers as they come out hot off of the press and you don't want to miss our conversation about gun and mental illness and make sure another sandy hook doesn't happen again or the shooting in
and an effective one. >> jim, your latest article is about wayne lapierre's state of the union response. here's part of that. >> we will not be duped by the hypocrisy in the white house or the congress who would deny our right to semiautomatic technology and the magazines we need to defend ourselves and our families. >> it would seem, jim, that no measure of public sentiment can way the nra message. obviously they don't care, right? >> well, i saw that speech as playing to his base, conspiratorial, to put it vaguely. but there are new forces coalescing against them. it's not just president obama who's smart enough and, like susan suggests, knows there will probably be limited gains legislatively in congress. maybe background checks but not much beyond that. but he also knows he's got folks like michael bloomberg getting very serious about going after the nra. in the back yard of that same speech yesterday which was in parts fairly pointed. you've got mayor bloomberg throwing a minimum of $1.5 million into a special congressional race to replace jesse jackson, jr., who pled yesterday. he's spe
away from necessary forms. >> your language about nra scaring, listen to wayne lapierre this morning on fox news using some scary language to talk about guns. >> we are all obsessed with the taliban and we ought to be. what about these gangs that are ruining neighborhoods. we need a federal task force, if it takes 500 agents, 1,000 agents, go into chicago. >> now chicago is the taliban, right? this feels like fear. >> it's an interesting thing. actually, i wouldn't be surprised if a lot of low income residents agreed with that. look, we want more law enforcement, we want this to be treated as a national emergency. maybe not with the same language. put 1,000 agents on the street of chicago, a lot of people might be in favor of that. >> weren't they away from the international treaty like that. you have to realize when he's talking, this is a guy whose main directive is to make more gun sales. slate had an article 300 million guns, shotguns for sporting. there's a diminishing return of sales there. now the big market is in the sort of vicarious fake military guy. that is where the mark
president wayne lapierre in a video back from 1999 in which he said that he supports universal background checks on gun purchases. but last week, during a cnn town hall on gun control, the nra made it very, very clear that the group's leaders do not support universal background checks. listen to that. >> there is a cost to this kind of basically bureaucracy, why should a law abiding citizen who isn't a problem, who is not a criminal, should have to go through additional background checks? why should we spend scarce law enforcement resources spending money on background checks of law abiding people who aren't the problem? >> that was sandy froman, an nra board member. we can't talk about the gun debate, of course, without showing this photo. take a look. this was released saturday. white house releasing this photograph of the president using a shotgun. part of skeet shooting up at camp david, an effort to show the president has, quote/unquote, profound respect for america's hunting traditions as he told the new republic in an interview recently. wolf blitzer joins me now. and, wolf, as we
